I can't tell without looking at the pest what it is and whether or not it is responsible for the brown patches in your lawn. It might be a disease or it could be caused by the insects. Here's a webpage with photos and descriptions that might be helpful to you:


Once you have identified the pests you can determine what your next steps should be. Best wishes with your lawn!
